Sarah’s first love is people. Wherever she travels in the world you will find her out on the streets, Leica in hand, looking for the people. She brings this love of street photography to the wedding day in her wonderful compositions full of humour, mischief, and character.
Her photographs can often be complex and multi-layered. They invite the viewer into parts of the wedding day which are seldom seen or documented. The extraordinary skill she has in placing elements within a frame without directing or controlling what is happening in front of her camera has drawn admiration from around the world. Her pictures are timeless and authentic.
Sarah’s wedding work has been published in Vogue, Hello, OK!, Elle, Instyle, Marie Claire, USA Today, The Daily Mail, The Sun, The London Evening Standard, and The Mirror. In 2016, Canon Europe used her documentary wedding photographs as the lead images for their Canon EOS 5DMKIV camera campaign.
All of the images in her gallery have been taken in real time without the subjects being aware of her presence.
